    Cruise into waters teeming with humpback whales and other marine life, and then dine on traditional Alaskan dishes at a seafood feast. Point Adolphus has the highest concentration of humpback whales in the Alaskan panhandle, so be on the lookout for these majestic and intelligent creatures. They will be breaching the water’s surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south. You might also observe frolicking Dall’s porpoises, Stellar Sea Lions, curious Harbor Seals and Orca whales, which sometimes feed on infirm or wounded humpbacks. Be sure to look skyward for majestic bald eagles, too. Following the whale-watching adventure, you too will have the opportunity to feast. A sumptuous meal of classic Alaskan dishes awaits you back in Hoonah. The menu will include seasonal shrimp and crabs, Andouille sausage and all sorts of sides. Afterwards, you can roast marshmallows around the campfire.

    Venture into the pristine wilds to look for iconic Alaskan animals such as humpback whales and grizzly bears in their natural habitats. Your adventure will begin aboard a whale-watching boat accompanied by a naturalist that will describe the creatures that you may soon observe. The nutrient-rich waters here are teeming with humpback whales that come to feed each summer before heading south to their breeding grounds. What a sight to watch these behemoths, which grow to about 50 feet long, as they breach the water’s surface and then dive down to feed again. Chances are, you will also catch sight of porpoises, sea lions and seals. After disembarking, you will drive deep into the remote Spasski River Valley to a raised observation platform to look for grizzly bears. They take their name from the gray, grizzled tips of their fur. Bald eagles and Sitka black-tailed deer are also commonly spotted here.

    Travel along the incredibly photogenic Klondike Highway to the Canadian border, while pausing along the way to snap pictures of the gorgeous wilderness. The road pretty much follows the trail that prospectors carved out during the Gold Rush of 1898. The countryside is still largely undeveloped, except for a few bridges and the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway that parallels the road. Named for the first Euro-American settlers in the area, the Captain William Moore Bridge offers a particularly panoramic view of Alaska’s interior. Other roadside stops will be made to view natural attractions such as ancient glaciers and Pitchfork Falls, a lovely cascade that splits into branches that resemble the tines of a pitchfork. After pausing again at the highway sign that marks the Canadian border at White Pass summit, you will travel back down the Klondike Highway toward Skagway. Commentary will enhance your understanding of the attractions and the area’s history.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Travel a picturesque highway that follows a trail created during the Gold Rush of 1898. • Snap pictures while pausing at scenic lookouts with views of glaciers and waterfalls. • Stop at the summit of White Pass, which marks the U.S. and Canadian border. • Hear enlightening commentary that describes the area’s history and attractions.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress warmly in layered clothing. • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Experience the top sights of Huahine up-close as you tour the island by 4WD and take an outrigger to a pearl farm. This wide-ranging excursion brings you across the bridge that links Huahine’s two principal islands and up to a lookout for spectacular panoramic views over Maroe Bay and the islands’ gem-blue surrounding lagoon. You’ll stop in at a drying house filled with the heavenly scent of vanilla, the seed pods of a tropical orchid vine. In Faie, you’ll feed bizarre blue-eyed eels that live in the village stream, while a visit to Maeva plunges you into an Indiana Jones-grade archeological site. The ruins of dozens of ancient open-air stone “marae” temples here are sacred artifacts marking where island royalty once lived. Not far away, you’ll encounter ingenious 400-year-old stone fish traps still in active use. Circling Huahine Nui to view its colorful bays and lagoons, you’ll pass Lake Fauna Nui and visit Fare, the largest town. And, hopping into an outrigger, you’ll cross to Huahine Pearl Farm and Pottery to learn the secrets of the black pearl and browse their farm shop for peals and famous blue pottery made from a glaze found at the bottom of the lagoon.

    See the island’s most spectacular natural wonders, starting with a hike to Kilauea Crater in Volcanoes National Park.


    The setting is so extraordinary that UNESCO deemed the park a World Biosphere site and a World Heritage site. To reach the crater, you will hike three miles roundtrip. The sights along the way will make it well worth the effort, as the volcano has been steadily erupting since 1983 and the surrounding countryside is dramatic. Afterward, you will pause for photos at magnificent Rainbow Falls, which is named for the rainbows that often form in the surrounding mist. Another photo opportunity awaits you at Liliuokalani Gardens, which pays tribute to the Japanese immigrants that worked in the sugarcane fields more than a century ago. Enjoy a local shopping stop where you can sample Hawaiian macadamia nuts before returning to the ship.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Hike through the dramatic countryside to a volcanic crater that continues to erupt.
    • Enjoy photo opportunities at Rainbow Falls and Liliuokalani Gardens.
    • Enjoy a local shopping stop and sample Hawaii macadamia nuts.

    Wave goodbye to the palms for a while as you explore the fascinating landscape Huahine has waiting for you under the water’s surface. Departing the pier by covered boat, you’ll head for Motu Vaiorea, a tiny reef-ringed islet tucked between Huahine’s two principal islands at the mouth of Bourayne Bay. En route, you can expect super views of both Huahine Nui and its smaller sister island, Huahine Iti. Once anchored just offshore of Motu Vaiorea, you’ll receive your safety briefing, get your supplied snorkeling gear on and adjusted, then hop into the lagoon for about an hour of delightful undersea sightseeing as you swim and explore. The crystalline water sparkles, and the marine inhabitants below, going about their day-to-day life in paradise, can reflect just about every color known in the tropical universe.

    Watch humpback whales and other marine creatures cavorting in the nutrient-rich waters at Point Adolphus, one of Alaska’s premier observation points. During the cruise, a naturalist will describe the diversity of animals that converge here each summer. They come primarily to feed in the waters that are extraordinarily rich in halibut, salmon and plankton. Point Adolphus is noted for having the highest concentration of humpback whales in the Alaskan panhandle, so be on the lookout for these majestic and intelligent creatures. You can expect them to be breaching the water’s surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south. You might also observe frolicking Dall’s porpoises, Stellar sea lions, curious harbor seals and Orca whales. You may also see graceful bald eagles swooping down to grab fish in their talons, and perhaps even bears and deer in the surrounding wooded landscape.

    Savor authentic Hawaiian dishes and beverages at several establishments in the historical district of Wailuku, which nestles at the foot of the West Maui Mountains.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive in the heart of historical Wailuku, where you will stop in a variety of unpretentious restaurants and locales to sample pure Hawaiian specialties. Some of the dishes will reflect the town’s Asian and Pacific Islander ethnicities.


    While the exact offerings will vary, you can expect to taste breakfast staples such as banana pancakes and hot malasadas, a fried-dough treat that Portuguese sugarcane workers introduced to Hawaii in the late 19th century.


    Loco moco is another classic, and the Tasty Crust has been serving it for more than 40 years in Wailuku. The dish is a savory combination of rice, hamburger patty and brown gravy, topped with a fried egg or two.


    In all likelihood, you will also sample delectable sashimi, a variety of poke bowls and seasoned saimin noodles. Another favorite is Spam musubi, a handheld with a slice of Spam wedged between two blocks of rice and wrapped in nori, a Japanese seaweed.


    You will also sample several beers at the Maui Brewing Company, Hawaii’s largest craft brewery. Selections range from a citrus-flavored India Pale Ale known as Big Swell to Coconut Hiwa Porter, a robust dark ale with hints of mocha.
